#Occupy Protest Signs

What started on September 17th as an occupation of a park near Wall Street in New York has grown into a global movement through social media , live streams and ongoing demonstrations against greed, disparity and corruption. Thusfar, over 1000 people have been arrested for peacefully demonstrating and many have been assaulted by the police. The occupation is spreading with several cities across North America hosting permanent encampments. What do you want to occupy? What do you want to change through through this movement. Show us how you feel by submitting a photo to our global gallery. All you need is a big blank sheet of paper, a marker, and a camera: write your message to the occupy movement and submit it to this gallery set. The winner will receive an $80 donation to be given to the #occupy movement of their choice.
